As a security integrator, we have a ton of valuable resources at our fingertips. We may not know everything about every product – our job is to pull resources together and present them to clients based on previous assessments and discussions. A sales pitch isn’t necessary if you truly understand your client’s needs, and the more the client understands the options available, the better the outcomes.

So, what are the requirements of being a proactive partner?

  1. Having a team of professionally trained, certified, licensed, and knowledgeable account managers, project managers, technicians, and support service associates.

  3. System Health Monitoring that recognizes a problem before it becomes critical.

  5. Dedicated account managers who understand your security needs, know your security systems and are committed to helping you meet your safety and security objectives.
  6. A commitment to educating clients and employees to ensure they understand system capabilities and emerging technologies.
  7. Expertise in IT, network, and cybersecurity protocols to mitigate risk to a client’s security operations and data from outside and internal threats.
